Parenting Book for Expectant Mothers
Helps Prioritize Child’s Spiritual Journey before Birth

Next to God's Word, this has to be the most perfect book for any
woman who longs to be a mommy! Marla has outdone herself with this beautiful
book and journal combination--almost enough to have me wanting another baby! I
only wish this book had been around when my children were in the womb. Perfect
for those who are longing for a baby, just found out about expecting, or for the
momma who's well on her way toward motherhood, "Expecting" is the best gift book
for hopeful moms I've seen yet.
– Deena Peterson - A Peek at My Bookshelf Blog
(Columbus, Ohio) – Numerous parenting books line the shelves of local bookstores and online sites, but rarely do expectant mothers come across a book that is entirely devoted to the prenatal body and soul development of their child. Author, Marla Taviano’s new book, Expecting: Praying for Your Child’s Development – Body and Soul, provides words of comfort, encouragement and inspiration for soon-to-be mommies. Whether a first pregnancy or a fifth, whether planned for or surprised by this new life, Marla’s sensitive writing and loving observations of unborn life will pacify anxious feelings and help moms focus on the One who can bring calm assurance. Amazing fetal developments, coupled with reflective journaling ideas make for a beautiful heirloom to pass down to future generations.

Marla knows the pressures of motherhood. Perhaps that’s why this book so aptly captures the nine months leading to the physical welcoming of a child into the world. Those quiet moments will be quickly replaced with dirty diapers, wet slobbery kisses and spit up. She inspires mommies to relish the physical changes and the tranquil pre-motherhood moments with the Creator of all things.

Marla Taviano is the author of From Blushing Bride to Wedded Wife (Harvest House, 2006), Is That All He Thinks About? (Harvest House, 2007), and Changing Your World, One Diaper at a Time (Harvest House, 2008). She also writes educational books for McGraw–Hill’s reading curriculum. She is a gifted communicator with a passion for reaching young women with God’s truth. Marla’s dynamic teaching style and genuine love for her students have made her a favorite among her pupils over the years. Audiences are entertained and encouraged by her engaging enthusiasm. Since composing her first poem at age four, Marla knew she wanted to be a writer. She left her teaching career in 2000 to stay home with her newborn daughter and devotes more time to writing.
Marla and her husband, Gabe, live in Ohio and have three daughters—eight-year-old Olivia Joy, six-year-old Ava Marie, and three-year-old Nina Gabriel.
